Encyclopaedia Heraldica, or Complete Dictionary of Heraldry, William BERRY, Sherwood Gilbert and Piper, 1828-40??

Reasonably clear reproduction of a very comprehensive work, although it can be difficult to find things, printed page numbers are rare and the contents page does not show page numbers anyway. Family names are scattered in several different sections and addenda. Despite this, there is a potentially useful cross reference sections that links ordinaries and charges with family names, e.g. you can answer questions such as "which armigers have a chevron sable"?

Fully text searchable, OCR accuracy 95%+, some pages and especially the plates in Volume III are quite faded.

To assist in using this work I have created a new table of contents, the numbers below being the PDF version page numbers. (Note volume II has a slightly different file name structure)

Volume I: ( encyclopaediaher01berr )

Introduction 14
Contents (not by page) 19

Index to Ordinaries 760 - 806 (links family names to the printed page numbers above)

Appendix 936 - 1115
Addenda & Errata 1116 - 1126 (I'm not clear what the difference is between this and the previous section)

Subject: File seems fine.
Doug,

You might want to try downloading this volume again. I just got it along with volumes 1 & 4. They all opened with no problem.

I'd like to have vol. 2 but haven't seen it in results or near the other volumes.

Just on opening the volume I'd give it a 5.

Thanks,

Wildflower Lover
